Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday criticised opposition parties for what he termed “a circus on containers” aimed at evading accountability.
His comments were in reference to the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam Fazl’s (JUI-F) recent ‘Azadi March’ in Islamabad, which had been joined in its early stages by key opposition leaders and their parties.
The prime minister had been addressing the inauguration ceremony of the Havelian-Mansehra section of the Hazara motorway. After dispensing with niceties and speaking about the potential benefits of the project, he turned his attention to the JUI-F’s dharna.
“If there ever was an expert on dharnas, he is standing right here,” he said in self reference, before mocking the opposition for giving up their protest too soon.
